The report outlines immediate action that is required by the international community, in partnership with the Government of Southern Sudan and local communities, to ensure that the region continues moving toward a peaceful, prosperous future. Recommendations include: ensuring that education and livelihood programs are designed and implemented in ways that are complementary and practical; supporting targeted programs that increase girls’ attendance and retention in school; prioritizing teacher training, particularly for female teachers; and ensuring that non-formal education activities train young people and adults in current and emerging market needs.
